Really, Twitter spam? I mean, how do you get spammed by people you voluntarily choose to follow. It’s like bitching that your Facebook "friends" are spamming you. Why did you make them friends, then.

To be fair, I’ve followed a couple of people (after they followed me) because they looked vaguely interesting, and then been inundated with crap - one person was even just retweeting Danny’s Tweets, without referencing the fact that they were scraped.

I’ve had a few follow me and at first glance they look legitimate but you soon find that every nth post was an affiliate link.

To me, spam is anything you don’t want to receive, whether it’s monetized or not. I think sometimes you assume that someone isn’t going to spam you and then it happens. As far as Facebook goes, I never made one friend there who didn’t spam me, including my own wife. :)

Yep, really.   They spam your @xxxx reply tab, which is annoying. :)

Well, I like the point that was made that if you are following a lot of people and don’t have many followers then you shouldn’t be considered a spammer.  When I first signed up, I followed almost every single blogger that I knew from various social sites and yes, they eventually followed me back but at one point it seemed like I was a spammer, but I’m not.
